Economics and Business | Communication lab workshop

Ethical conduct is the backbone of successful organizations and societies. To effectively facilitate ethical behavior, managers and policy makers seek to use all tools available to them, including scientific research. Indeed, ample scientific work is devoted to uncover the settings most likely to increase ethical behavior and root out ethical misconduct. But to what extent does science tackle and answer the questions that policy makers care about? Do scientific insights feed into policies shaped in international organizations like the World Bank, OECD, as well as local ones like the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM)? How can we verify that questions policy makers care about are indeed studied on the basic level? To what extent should we stimulate research on open policy questions? And what are the challenges and limits of science in informing policy making? This interactive symposium brings together policy makers and scientists seeking to tackle these questions together. The meeting is sponsored by the Research Priority Area Behavioral Economics (UvA; Communication Lab), European Research Council, Young Academy of Europe, and is hosted by Economics and Business, UvA.

Date and time: February 24th, 2017, 09:00 to 17:30, reception till 19:30.
